Like I said in the last post, we bought peanut butter cream cheese at Trader Joe’s recently.
It was delicious.
And gone way too fast.
It said it had 8 servings. Find me someone who can make that last for 8 days. Not possible.
So after sadly tossing the empty container (which I may or may not have licked. It happens.) I set out to make some more. From reading the ingredients I knew I didn’t need much-in fact, it only takes 3 things!
Peanut Butter Cream Cheese
- 8 oz (1 Block) of Cream Cheese
- 3/4 c of Powdered Sugar (this makes for sweet cream cheese, but not frosting sweet-adjust as desired)
- ~1/3 c of Peanut Butter (just like with the sugar, adjust as desired)
(The TJs stuff has peanuts in it-you can use chunky PB or add in some chopped peanuts if that texture is important to you)
Either let the cream cheese soften a bit or beat the heck out if it so that it’ll mix well
Measure out the powdered sugar. It’s ok to spill a little. Your husband will clean up because he’s happy he’s getting more PB cream cheese.
Blend the sugar and cream cheese
No nutrition label = no lies about “8 servings”.
Fair warning: this looks a lot like hummus. Which means if you had a bowl of hummus at dinner and you let your husband put it away he may mistake the cream cheese container for the hummus container. And if you’re PMSing and your husband just jacked up both your hummus and your PB cream cheese?
There will be tears.
Guess how I know…
